Perfecting Liquid Foundation
CLAIMS: It is made especially for extra sensitive and acne prone skin. Formulated to help heal and prevent skin problems, provide flawless matte finish, and give full coverage without a heavy look and feel. Suits all skin types. Matte finish that moisturizes, protects, and covers with SPF 50.

Net wt: 30ml
Packaging: Just like their HD Firming Foundation (BB cream) it is house in a clear type plastic bottle which comes with a pump.
Scent: smells like choco-vanilla
I like that it comes in 3 shades which are all suitable for Filipina skin types:
- Light Beige – for white skin
- Natural Beige – my shade (applicable for fair and morena)
- Honey Beige – the darkest shade with deep yellow undertone (medium/sand)
Texture and Coverage:
First, I would like to inform you that I don’t feel any irritation or allergic reaction while testing this product. Basically, It’s like an air whipped type of foundation with a thick consistency but not too liquidy or watery.
I like how it blends really well even after swatching on the back of my hand I notice a visible change which actually covers my matte lip cream with just one swipe. This foundation is not sticky and doesn’t dry easily. I like the velvety finish which actually adapts to my skin tone, that’s why I can use both natural beige and honey beige. Though it oxidizes on my skin
I’m fortunate enough to have all the shades so I can mix/switch. Remember to choose one shade lighter. This foundation performs beyond my expectation. Been using it for a week and I love that it doesn’t come off easily, except if you are sweating too much. It is long lasting and very lightweight. The coverage is medium to full plus it is buildable too. But I highly suggest to apply just enough for the entire face to avoid overly makeup since it has a full coverage even at first swipe. This is good for those with major acne/pimples as it can cover and at the same time helps to heal and prevent skin problems. You should also wait for it to set before you apply a powder either compact/loose so not too look cake-y.
Remember that it always depends on how you apply your makeup. Having cake-y look doesn’t have to blame with the foundation. Know that it is also a base for your makeup so make sure to have enough skin care routine so as not to look overly done.
I highly recommend this foundation not because it was sent to me but I personally use it and I love using it especially during whole day errands. It is made with organic elements and for the price of P850.00 it is a good investment for your skin. Nature Essentials will launch their concealer soon and just like the foundation, it also provides a full coverage.
